Leandro Polverini passed away in Rome on 18 April 2023; he was born in Castelnuovo dei Sabbioni (Arezzo) in 1935.

Leandro Polverini’s body of work has been an inspiration to many; without the example he set, we doubt whether our idea of a journal entirely devoted to the history of classical scholarship would have quite materialised in the way it did. HCS loses an unfailingly supportive member of its Editorial Board, who followed the development of the journal with the insight, attention, and warmth that those who had the good fortune of working with him know well. We remember him with gratitude, and we shall miss him deeply.
